Pics

Well I finally got her put together. I was holding off on pictures hoping to have a suitable model (So that no one would notice the home paint ) but I dont have the heart to ask anyone to put on a bikini when its 40F outside.

3. The can needs new paint... Does anyone know if the muffler can take 450F? If so, I'm going to powder coat it.

Did you use spray-on bed liner Vash?

On the can, just take it all apart, it should powdercoat no problem. Wouldn't have the packing in there, but exhaust gas is hotter than 450. Should powedercoat the footpeg brackets too.

Yep. Spray on bed lines, 5 coats, 12 cans total.

I was thinking the same on the can, it should be fine, it is a muffler after all. However if it comes apart its a much better way to go (I figured i'd be welded together). Black brackets as well? I'll have to do something to the bike to make it stand out.. Its already way overly black.

Duesell: Thanks!

Looks good. I like the crinkle look. No more worries about chipped paint or scratches.
